Andre Ellington set to flop in 2015

Andre Ellington is somewhat of an enigma. The Cardinals organization loves him, many defensive coordinators don’t know how to account for him and his speed causes separation nightmares. But, with all those intangibles, why was Ellington always struggling last season?
